My solution to displaying collectibles is to sell them as quickly as possible or donate them to a museum where you can go look at them when you want and take an in-kind tax write-off. They are usually dust catchers. In my busy life, I do not have time to maintain them or have a lot of people over to look at them. Secondly my children are busier than I am and are not in the least bit interested in collecting the same things I like.
The collectibles are usually easily broken as well. They should be kept in a glass cabinet if you are going to display them at home. Or collect something that you are going to enjoy using each day. In summary, my solution for dealing with collectibles is to give them away to a museum or sell them.
